WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- After a month long break, Congress returns to Washington on Monday to weigh in on a potential military strike on Syria after a supposed chemical weapons attack.
A filibuster over whether to officially take up the Syria resolution is expected in the Senate but Majority Leader Harry Reid says he'll take steps to avoid it.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has already passed a rewritten authorization measure. The Senate could vote on it as early as Thursday or Friday.
There is support for President Obama's call for military action in Syria, but some lawmakers say the administration has failed to make its case to congress and the American people.
Meanwhile, President Obama has interviews scheduled with major news outlets on Monday. He'll preview his case for a military strike to them before presenting it to the American public Tuesday night.
